Who we are:
Shelanu – which means belonging to us – is a Birmingham based craft social enterprise. Shelanu is a collective of migrant and refugee women who produce high quality craft objects inspired by their new home of Birmingham, informed by their countries of origin. The women of Shelanu are currently working with Craftspace to develop the craft social enterprise. The work stimulates and contributes to a contemporary sense of place-making enabling others to rediscover heritage, identity and individualism through the eyes of diverse cultures.
All funds raised go towards assisting refugee women to gain well-being and aspiration through creative development. They also integrate and contribute by sharing their skills with local communities who profit from the rich diversity of the women’s experience.
